Best Beginner Paintball Gear

Paintball is an exhilarating sport that combines strategy, teamwork, and adrenaline-pumping action. If you're new to the world of paintball, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of gear available. From paintball guns to masks, air systems to barrels, there's a lot to consider when it comes to choosing the right equipment. We’re breaking down the essential paintball gear for beginners, helping you understand the options available and make informed choices that suit your playing style and budget. So, whether you're gearing up for casual woodsball or aspiring to go pro in speedball, get ready to discover the must-have gear that will enhance your paintball experience and keep you safe on the field.

Markers

When it comes to paintball, the most iconic equipment on the field is undoubtedly the paintball guns, also known as markers. However, many people are unaware of the wide range of choices available in the world of paintball gear. Before diving into the selection process, it's important to determine the type of paintball you'll be playing, as it will dictate the kind of gun you need. For beginners who are simply looking for casual play without professional aspirations, the popular options are woodsball or scenario games. In this category, you'll find a variety of paintball guns with different designs, including those that simulate real firearms like the Tippmann Cronus Tactical. On the other hand, speedball players will want a marker that can reach higher rates of fire without breaking the bank like the Empire Mini GS or the Planet Eclipse EMEK. For beginners, a mechanical paintball gun is a reliable and affordable choice, while those seeking a more impactful start can opt for an electric gun.

Goggles

When it comes to paintball, the importance of wearing proper masks and goggles cannot be overstated. These pieces of gear serve as the primary defense for your head and face, which are particularly vulnerable to projectile hits. A reliable paintball mask should not only provide effective protection against high-velocity attacks but also be fog-proof and offer a wide field of vision. It's crucial to ensure that your protective gear doesn't hinder your ability to see clearly, as impaired visibility can lead to accidents or injuries. For beginners, the Virtue VIO Ascend offers an excellent option that maximizes both coverage and visibility. The Empire E-Flex is another great option which comes with rapid lens changing technology.

Tanks

To propel paintballs with impressive speed and accuracy, a reliable air supply is essential. Whether it's CO2 or compressed air, you'll need a well-functioning air system to ensure optimal performance on the field. Investing in a high-quality air system is a must for beginners and those seeking to elevate their game. The HK Army Aluminum 48/3000 is a great option for budget-friendly equipment seekers. However, for the absolute best and lightest tank, you can’t go wrong with the Ninja Lite air tank. A note to players as well, make sure you understand the difference between air-powered markers and CO2 powered markers before buying a tank as these are not interchangeable.

Loaders

Paintball markers are dead in the water without loaders and hoppers. They serve the crucial function of holding the paintballs and feeding them into the gun through the air system for firing. One of the fascinating aspects of paintball guns is that you need not concern yourself with the limitations of magazines, as you would with real firearms. Opting for a gun equipped with a top-notch paintball hopper that can hold up to 200 rounds at once is a wise choice.The Virtue Spire iR2 and the Dye LT-R are both excellent loaders for beginner paintballers.
